Carl Jung said
“The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? … If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change.”
I believe that realisation is happening now through Artificial Intelligence. We are realising intelligence is infinite, thinking doesn’t arrive at a boundary. The last significant evolutionary turning point for Human Intelligence was when Greek philosophers established identity. Now we have created AI where identity isn’t required and move toward our next evolutionary leap. AI uses the infinite, a cloud. Humans have always existed in a cloud since the Greek realisation of identity. You and me, a collective with ideas to share. We have created a cloud in technology, WiFi for our phones and now AI.
AI is a copy of Human Intelligence. We might evolve beyond identity as we understand more about our cloud, the infinite. AI makes the infinite more tangible. Perhaps we can evolve from the “I” to the “we”, not just the collective we but an embodied we.
